A small farm sink works well in a pantry, as a prep sink or even in a bathroom.
In a way, a small farm sink — 18 to 24 inches wide — may be more versatile than its larger cousin. And it still can be effectively paired with a full-size faucet. In the pantry of this traditional kitchen by the British firm of Robinson and Cornish, a 24-inch apron front sink is set at one end of a counter. Given the tight space, the designers chose to install the classic chrome Barber Wilsons Bridgemaster faucet on the painted wood backsplash. That way the gooseneck spout is high enough to accommodate flower vases, a bucket, or other tall items (even a small dog) and still drain easily into the back of the sink.
Barber Wilsons also makes matching pillar taps — a type of old-fashioned single spigot we still see in England but rarely in the U.S.. This one is mounted on the deck as a separate filtered drinking-water faucet with a forward lever action.
The square farm sink has a plain apron front and is installed under a marble counter, flush with the cabinet on each side. The edges of the counter are even with the inside rim of the sink for a neutral reveal — which requires caulk. As with Clive Christian’s D-shape stainless steel Prep Sink with Runnels, the counter adjacent to this pantry sink also is channeled so water moves directly into the basin as things drain.
